Dear Church Family:
Fall is certainly in our midst and I hope you are able to enjoy some of the color that is appearing on trees and some of the smells that are in the autumn air.
This week a positive COVID test emerged from within the confines of our Smart Cookies preschool ministry. Our Smart Cookies committee took quick and responsible action, closing the school for the next two weeks so that our custodian, Kendal Trader, has ample opportunity to clean and disinfect our facilities.
In addition, all of our church staff has been tested for COVID. The results of those tests should be completed by Saturday, October 17. The committee has encouraged all Smart Cookies volunteers to be tested as well.
I want you to know that, unless you have recently spent time in our Smart Cookies classrooms or had hands-on involvement with its ministry, it is unlikely that you have come in contact with potentially infected persons.
I also want you to know that until the church staff has its test results, the medical team at Keystone Urgent Care has advised us to use common sense and shelter-in-place. Today (Thursday) through Saturday you may encounter no one answering your phone call. If that is the case, please feel free to call us at home if you have a concern or an emergency.
Finally, because the building needs to be cleaned and disinfected and test results have not yet returned, our Church Board has affirmed that WE WILL NOT MEET FOR WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18. Both our 8:30 and 10:45 services are cancelled and there will be no livestream broadcast.
All of this is being done to ensure your safety and particularly the safety and wellbeing of our Smart Cookies students for whom we are responsible. Thank you for your understanding. We hope to be back in worship on Sunday, October 25th.
